to get the absolute pressure of a fluid you would take the static pressure and add it to the dynamic pressure. And you would have the total pressure. If that total pressure lets say 10psi static pressure and 5 psi dynamic pressure, gave a total of 15psi. So if you had 15 psi flowing through a pipe and into a closed tank to pressurize it would the value of the pressure in the closed tank be equal to 15psi the absolute pressure of the fluid?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
